Intersection of Wall Street & Main Street
Much has been made of the trends in IPOs and the count of public companies in the U.S. There are many good reasons to be concerned with these trend lines. We will touch on some of the key causes of companies staying private longer or staying permanently private, as well as some of the responses that the SEC is considering.
At a more pragmatic level, this session will dive deeper on the impact that a healthy IPO market has on already public companies and the broader economy. How does it impact views on organic R&D vs. R&D through M&A? What implications are there on human resources/culture for public and private companies as the IPO market waxes and wanes? As private companies stay private longer, how are the sources of private equity evolving to address new markets? What new considerations do private companies face in light of greater sources of capital? What forecasts can we make for the future of private and public capital markets?
Please join panelists: Sunny Gupta (CEO, Co-Founder, Apptio), Matt McIlwain (Managing Director, Madrona Venture Group), and Dr. Jennifer Koske (Associate Professor, University of Washington).
